Choose a Colour Palette
Decide on a color palette to incorporate into your new outdoor settings decor.

Build a Daybed
A daybed can be a great addition to any home, it can create a cosy and relaxing zone in your home that can be enjoyed all year round. It’s a fun and snug idea that falls in between a hammock and outdoor sofa. It’s also a perfect and innovative addition to an entertaining area, reading nook or a great place for those afternoon summer naps.
Adding some ambient lighting and lanterns is another simple but effective way to change the look of your backyard. Lanterns can act as a point of interest as well as providing some warmth to an area, bringing form and mood to an area. Fairy lights are another great option that can pull attention to a certain area or feature and definitely worth investing in as they can be used for a wide range of lighting and decorative ideas.
If you don’t have the space for a large outdoor dining area or want a specific area that can be soaked in the early morning sun a breakfast nook could be a great addition to your outdoor setting. Find a nice place near the garden that gets all the morning sun, and simply add a little table and chairs. What a perfect way to start any day.
Create an Escape Zone
If you’ve got a big backyard space, you could consider creating a little getaway oasis. You’ll want to find a spot area from your existing outdoor entertaining space and create your dream escape space. Whether that’s a little paved area with some cosy couches surrounded by lush greenery, or a gazebo with some table and chairs. As long as you can create a place that relaxes you and makes you feel like you’re on a holiday that should be the only rule.
Pop of Colour
When decorating the exterior of their home people often tend to work with neutral tones. Which is a great way to create a neat and modern space, but if you want to change your space up, considering colour into the zone can be a great idea. Adding colours through your furniture or adding some colour in and around your garden with plants is a simple way to add subtle pops of colour. Mimicking the sunshine and sky with bright yellows, oranges, and blues is a simple starting point.
